  • You repeat what you want him to say over and over and over until he gets it.

  • They will talk when they are ready.

  • patience.. my daughter was over 2 years old before she started talking. Repeat things to the child, name everything in sight. When you're looking outside talk about what you see. When you hand him something tell him what it is, say 'can you say cup'? Eventually he will start to repeat, and then you work on word building. If he's not talking by 2, call your local birth-3 program and get a speech therapist to come do visits.

  • Is he saying any words at all? Have you talked to his pediatrician?
